Do Something Selfless Today – It’s Good For The Soul

I was thinking today about the difference it can make when you do something to help someone else and you know it really makes a difference. It feels good. No one should ever spend their life trying to please other people, we all need to be ourselves and look after ourselves and our own family and friends but it doesn’t take much to be nice to other people. Sometimes something as simple as a smile, holding a door or just being happy and patient can make the world of difference to someone else. Anyone who works in a service industry and has to deal with customers will know what I mean. I visit this site quite a lot, it’ a happy positive website and although some of the references only relate to America (hello US friends) it’s worth a read. Do something selfless and help someone else, it’s a nice feeling.

Remembering

12 years ago today we said goodbye to Ian Dury.

I found this link on the Blockheads Blog, remember him this way it said. And why not? It may be an advert but the message is no less valid because of that.

Sieze the day, we only get one chance to live and in the words of Mr Dury (and the Sunday Times copywriters)

Don’t accept what life throws at you – chuck something back once in a while.

Wise Words # 6

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
